Complex nose of ripe fruit, delicately exotic and black pepper - great Veltliner from old vines!
Open and expressive on the nose, playful with spicy and exotic notes; spicy on the palate with pressure and multi-layered aromas, very elegant and good drinking flow; long-lasting. Smaragd stands for dry, dense and complex wines from the Wachau; in addition to structure and depth, Smaragd wines also have great ageing potential.

Himmelstiege was originally a small steep slope in Dürnstein and became a popular Wachau wine many years ago. Today, the grapes for the Himmelstiege wines come from terraced vineyards, partly fortified with dry stone walls and from vineyards along the Danube, mainly from Dürnstein and Loiben. The very poor soil and the exceptional exposure of the vineyards produce wines with classic Wachau fruit and minerality.

Ideal when served chilled, the wine goes perfectly with classic Austrian cuisine such as stuffed veal breast, roast goose and duck and even roast pork.

The Wachau wine region is a renowned wine growing area in Austria that stretches along the Danube River. It is located in the region of Lower Austria and covers an area of about 1,350 hectares. The Wachau is known for its steep terraced vineyards and its poor soils, which give the grapes their characteristic aroma.

The Wachau produces mainly white wines from the grape varieties Grüner Veltliner and Riesling are cultivated. These wines are known for their high quality and varied aromas, ranging from fruity to mineral. Due to the cool climate and the high altitude of the vineyards, the grapes ripen slowly and thus develop an intense aroma.

Another characteristic of the Wachau is its wine terraces and the historic wine villages, which are located in the middle of vineyards. The viticultural culture of the Wachau is of great importance and is carefully cultivated by the winegrowers in the region. The grape harvest here is often done by hand to ensure optimal quality of the grapes.

The Wachau is also a popular tourist destination, as the vineyards and villages provide a picturesque backdrop. Wine tastings and cellar tours are very popular here to taste the wines of the region and learn more about viticulture in the Wachau.
